GRAPEVINE After an intensive four-day manhunt, fugitive Alberto Morales was shot and killed near Grapevine Lake late Friday night, according to Grapevine police.
Morales considered armed and extremely dangerous had been at large after stabbing a Miami-Dade County detective with a pair of eyeglasses Monday night as he was in transit to Las Vegas for a trial.
The violent escape happened in the parking lot of a Walmart store in Grapevine.

Just think of the savings.
Just more jet fuel for another Obama boondoggle.
“The news that this guy had escaped was cause for a lot of concern in this area.”
I was concerned but prepared.
This guy was a real sweetheart...committed crimes across several states, ranging from sexual assault to stealing animals..he did it all!
[snip]According to the Star-Telegram, in 1994, according to records, Morales punched his girlfriend in the face when he came home and found she did not have dinner waiting for him. In 1995, Miami police conducting a traffic stop found that he had stolen four exotic birds valued at $5,000.
In 1996, police say Morales shot several dogs at a wildlife center, where he stole $250,000 worth of animals. He was arrested when he sold the animals to a police source, reports the Star-Telegram. That year, police also arrested him after finding him looking through the back yards of homes. Authorities seized a bag of cocaine from his car and 11 lovebirds in a pillowcase.
Alberto Morales is 5 feet 7 inches tall, weighs 175 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes. He is of Cuban descent and has a tattoo of an American Indian on a horse on his left shoulder and scars on his left hand, left arm and nose, authorities say.
He should have waited to escape until he was out of Texas.
Firearms were invented in the 12th century in China.
“Grapevine police would not immediately say whether Morales had a weapon, but confirmed that he had removed any shackles that were in place when he escaped.”
So the guy’s in the middle of a pasture, didn’t say he was shooting at the police, won’t say whether or not he was armed, but he sure is dead.
We could save even more money by getting rid of the judicial branch completely. We can kill all suspects and fugitives on site and save the government tons of money they can spend on more crap they make up.
Congress is bypassed by the President, the Supreme Court is kangaroo. The President, ATFE elemenopee, DHS and local law enforcement are all we need to keep us all safe and in our pens.
Saved us a bunch of money. I like that.
My thoughts exactly.
Years ago - I posted a comment that many air travelers were carrying potential weapons - YES - Eyeglasses!!!!
Thinking that someone with a plan could modify the stems into sharp blades. Took a lot of FReeper ridicule for that one;)
I am vindicated.
Apart from your comment being completely irrelevant, you have a point.
-had been at large after stabbing a Miami-Dade County detective with a pair of eyeglasses Monday night as he was in transit to Las Vegas for a trial.-
LOLZ! That’s the only reason I’ve read this site. I just want to know what he did with the eyeglasses. AND THEY DON’T TELL.
I’ll assume the term “de facto” confused you and be on my way.
NYP--Suspected NYC-to-Buffalo drug kingpin arrested / ASSOCIATED PRESS
State police say they've arrested a NYC man who spent two years on the lam after being identified by authorities as the kingpin in a multimillion-dollar heroin ring. Authorities announced Monday that 33-year-old Eury Rodriguez of Queens was tracked down by the state police Special Investigations Unit in White Plains and taken into custody last Thur. He's scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday in state SC in Buffalo on various drug charges, including operating as a major trafficker. Officials say Rodriguez ran an operation that moved more than seven kilos of heroin with an estimated street value of $3.5M from the Bronx to Buffalo. In March 2011, he was one of 15 people named in a 51-count drug indictment, but he managed to avoid arrest until last week.
Ths'll make your skin crawl.
Hezbollah in Yucatán / FR Posted by Ernest_at_the_Beach
Our southern border is porous not just to Mexicans, Salvadorans, and Guatemalans, but also to Islamic terrorists. Operatives from Al Qaeda and Hezbollah acquire a Latin American passport and enough Spanish to allow their swarthiness to pass as Latino.
This latest report concerns the arrival of a Hezbollah associate in Mexico. Labboun Rafic Mohammed, the Muslim cleric allegedly linked to Hezbollah and a fugitive from U.S. justice who was arrested in Merida on September 8, 2012, arrived at Yucatán immigration through a network of Lebanese government officials in collusion with Belizeans who gave him a fake passport from that country.
Upon his arrest by officers of the Public Security Secretariat Yucatecan government, Labboun exhibited a Belizean passport in the name of Wilhelm Dyck, a Mennonite child born in that country in February 1976 who died two months later. A drivers license was issued in the same name.
Razur Antonio Elias, director of the Mexican Drug Observatory investigating Islamist organizations associated with Mexican drug traffickers (and their possible ramifications in the Yucatán Peninsula), said that the group offered Belizean passports, birth certificate and fake drivers license for $ 25,000......and organizes the transfer through Mexican territory to the U.S. border, where the city of Merida, it seems, is key to the logistics.
The detention of a Lebanese with a Belizean passport has set off alarm bells. Although Labboun Rafic Mohammed is a radical Islamist hardliner and a follower of Ayatollah Khomeini, US authorities had failed to demonstrate his links with Hezbollah terrorist activity, until recently.
New data from this case, however, point to the possible presence of the Islamic group backed by Iran and Syria in some areas of the Yucatán Peninsula. ####
